This thread has a topic?

Thought the topic (per its title) was why one might not buy the K-3, not just the reason given by the OP. Do we need a thread called "I like the Ricoh name, but I'm still not getting a K-3 right now."?

I'm excited about the possibilities of this thread. I have often thought that maybe, just maybe someday I could invent something that does nothing at all, but does it really, really well!
Too late.

What if it said "Ricoh" on the back? On the box?



(wait, what does that remind me of? Oh, yes...)

I do not like the Ricoh brand.
I do not like it, Sam-I-am.

I will not shoot it in the rain.
I will not shoot it on a train.
Not in the dark! Not in a tree!
Not in my car! You let me be!
I do not like it on the box.
I do not like it with a fox.
I will not have it in my house.
I will not buy it with my mouse.
I do not like it here or there.
I do not like it ANYWHERE!
I do not like your Ricoh brand!
I do not like it, Sam-I-am.

With all due respect to all, I simply don't understand this aversion to the Ricoh name. Remember, Ricoh saved our beloved Pentax brand. We should be singing their praise, not plotting ways to cover up their name! Sorry, but I feel this attitude is ridiculous, childish, and ungrateful. So, either support the brand or not.

Oh, I never had a problem with Ricoh, either. I was just paraphrasing the OP's viewpoint (if the OP was Dr. Seuss).

Yeah, I saw that. I thought I would give him a break. He probably hasn't read the whole thread.

THAT would be the perfect post to end this thread on, but I just can't bring myself to close it.

Why I won't buy a K3.

Because I just bought a K5-II a couple of months ago and I appear to be coming down with LBA.
If I turned around and bought another body now, my wife would most probably kill me. It does look pretty good though.....

Apologies for posting on topic.

Yep, that's a page outta my play book! Took me a couple of years to talk her out of her beloved K2000 though. Had to promise to give it to her sister.

I like the way you blokes think.

Unfortunately my missus has no interest in photography apart from occasionally suggesting a subject for me to photograph.
To give you an idea of where she stands with cameras, she has commented in the past that my Fuji superzoom was too large and complicated for her to use.

The positive side of her lack of interest would be she wouldn't notice the difference if I got a K3 and hid the K5.
